Summer Institute

We are excited to announce that applications for our Summer Institute 2019 are now open!

In previous years, we have hosted 2 Summer Institute sessions. Due to an increase in the number of FinCamp PLUS events we're hosting, in 2019, we'll be hosting just one Summer Institute between June 23 - 26, 2019.

Here’s what you can expect from the Summer Institute 2019 Session:

  • An opportunity to network with eleven other passionate, dedicated, innovative personal finance teachers from around the country
  • Meaningful, relevant workshops from NGPF staff as well as guest presenters
  • A school-year commitment of serving as an NGPF Fellow, sharing your expertise with our nationwide community
  • All expenses paid, including transportation, hotel accommodations, all meals, and a few fun events around town
  • A lot of hard work and a lot of fun!

Who should apply?

We anticipate selecting teachers with a diverse set of experiences. For example, last year's Summer Institutes had participants across 2 sessions hailing from 18 states, who came from a variety of school types (public, charter, and private), settings (rural, suburban, and urban) and had different levels of teaching experience.

Applicants must:

  • Be current US high school personal finance teachers or teacher-educators
  • Be able to travel to our Palo Alto, CA office where the Summer Institute will be held
  • Participate in all sessions during the 3 day professional development, including a Welcome Dinner on Sunday, June 23
  • Serve as an NGPF Fellow for the 2019-2020 school year 
  • Submit a completed application by Friday, March 1, 2019

Applications are now open. Deadline for submission is Friday, March 1, 2019.
